Hi I'm Kimberly O'Connor

I was born and raised in Virginia. I love building homes. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports and be outside. I love playing board and card games. I study construction management when at school; BYU-Idaho. I want to travel. I have been to Greece and Turkey and loved them both.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, it's not because it's easy but because it's easy to see the blessings of following the teachings of Christ. There are many trials but through each trial I can see the Lords hand. Elder Jack Gerard, previously my stake president and now an area seventy, once said, "As you follow the commandments more exactly, the Lord gives you more commandments." The more you show the Lord he can trust you the more he trusts you with. My parents have taught me so well to realize the blessing in trials and what amazing blessings come from working through our trials. I'm so grateful for this gospel and the difference it makes in my life and the strength it gives me when I am faced with trials.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by searching for opportunities to serve others. By serving those around me people see the good in members of the LDS Church and even if they are not baptized they will have an appreciation for members of the Church and have a love for them and what us, as members, have done for them and their families.
